THE MAYSVILLE MINSTREL

clipped silly items from the local papers and sent them to George,
who substituted his own captions for Charley's and pasted them up. Charley had a tip that Old Man Townsend would be in Mays
ville on a certain day, and as he was in the neighborhood, he took
an interurban car thither and called at the gas office. Stephen had
just got back from a fruitless tour among the deadheads and was
in the shop, behind the office, telling Ed Hunter that Mrs. Har
per's pilot-light wouldn't stay lighted.
Roberts, alone in the office, looked idly at Stephen's desk and
saw a book.
It was a volume of poems by Amy Lowell. A moment later
Stephen reentered from the shop.
" Hello there, Gale," said Roberts.
" How are you, Mr. Roberts ?" said Stephen. " I heard the Old Man was here," said Roberts.
" You've missed him," said Stephen. " He was here yesterday
afternoon and left for Haines City last night."
" Will he be here tomorrow? "
" I couldn't tell you. He's hard to keep track of."
" He's hard to sell, too. But I'll run over there and take a
chance. I notice you've been reading highbrow poetry."
" I got this from the library." " How do you like it? "
" I'm not strong for poetry that don't rhyme," said Stephen. " I guess it's easier to write," said Roberts.
" I don't believe so. It isn't much trouble rhyming if you've got
it in you. Look at Edgar Guest."
" How do you know he doesn't have trouble? "
" His works don't read like it," said Stephen, and after a pause :
" Besides, I've tried it myself."
" Oh, so you're a poet, are you ?" asked Roberts.
" I wouldn't exactly claim that, but I've written a few verses
and it was more like fun than work. Maybe other people would
think they were rotten, but I get pleasure writing them just the
same."
" I'd like to read them, Gale," said Roberts eagerly.
" I don't know if I'd like you to or not. And I don't know if
I've saved any. I wrote a poem to my wife on her birthday three
years ago. She thought it was pretty good. I might let you read
that, only I don't know if I've got a copy of it around here." He knew very well he had a copy of it around there. " See if you can find it," said Roberts.
